Fainting and Tattoos…

Yesterday evening my sister brought up the idea of us getting matching tattoos together. I surprisingly jumped on it. I have little tolerance for pain and am terrified to get a tattoo but I’ve always wanted one. My sister has a medium sized tattoo on her arm and a couple piercings already. She already knows tattoos that she wants in the future, but she suggested that the two of us get tattoos. I think it’s a great idea because then whenever we are a part all I have to do is look at the tattoo and she keeps me sane. My sister has always been the one to keep me grounded and bring me back to reality when I’m not in a stable state of mind, so getting this tattoo with her seems like a really good idea. Not just because it brings our bond closer, but because I’ll always have a part of her with me no matter where I go, and that’s really comforting.

Below is the tattoo we are getting together. She also mentioned that maybe not right when we get this one done, but later on we could each put the first initial inside the moon. So inside her moon would be an “A” for Anna. I’m getting mine on my inter wrist and she is still deciding where she wants hers.


This morning I woke up and walked into the upstairs TV room where the treadmill is. Mom, dad, and my sister were all in there. I got a good look at my dad and his face was bruised and cut with blood, and his hands, arms, and knees were cut and bloody too. Everyone explained that my dad fainted while on the treadmill and that’s how he got so bruised. It looks bad and I was so worried. My mom and dad are old for parents. My mom is in her 60’s and my dad is 70. So seeing my dad all bruised up made me worried. He is going to a doctor soon though, so I pray that everything is okay.


My sister and I tried to go get the tattoos today but our parents called us right as we were going to go to the shop so we had to go home so she could work on her final paper. So hopefully in two weeks we will get them done. Our parents don’t know we are doing this so that’s why we had to head home.

I’m really nervous! Can anyone tell me what their experience was getting a tattoo? The guy at the shop said the tattoo we wanted would only take five minutes and that it’s the people that are nervous the most that are the ones who handle it the best.



One thought on “Fainting and Tattoos…

  1. The thicker the lines are on your tattoo, the more it hurts. But since yours will be a simple outline and looks pretty small, you should be good! Getting tattooed sort of feels like getting stung by a bee. I consider myself to have a very low pain tolerance too, and my tattoo took about an hour in a very painful place (my hipbone), but I was still surprisingly okay. I know pain is relative and all, but don’t freak yourself out too much. It’ll be quick and once it’s done, it’s worth it 🙂
